Fermentation Festival

September 27, 10-4pm at the Egleston Farmers Market, Jamaica Plain, MA

Our second annual Fermentation Festival will be a tour de fermentation! This completely *free* festival will be headlined by one of the worl's most reknowned fermentation revivalists, Sandor Katz. Also on hand will be dozens of speakers, lectures, demos and small fermenting businnesses will be on hand to sample & sell their delicious work. We will also have a competitive & tasty pickle-off with some of Boston's most creative chefs.


The festival will be for all levels of fermenting enthusiasts & lactic acid aficionados. There will be more advanced workshops & demos and a kraut mob for those interested in learning the basics of fermentation. 


Then on September 28th, join us for an intimate fermentation-themed brunch with Sandor at Oleana Restaurant! Mark your calendars! And to get a sense of the festival overall, see last year's festival agenda. And see last years' media coverage of the event.
